Making an Impact in Interviews


This session will help you to approach interviews as calmly as possible! Nerves are part of the process, but when you are under too much pressure, it can affect your performance. Together we will look at developing a positive mindset for interviews, help you to prepare for unexpected questions, give well-structured answers, and look at ways to overcome nerves and stress. This session is for you if:

  • You have an interview coming up (especially if it has been a long time since your last one)
  • You have been unsuccessful recently and it has affected your confidence
  • You want to put maximum effort into preparation and a positive attitude before the next opportunity comes up
